Are you sweating? Johnson spends his vacations in Marbella at an upscale £25k-per-week resort.
BORIS JOHNSON is currently on vacation in an upmarket Spanish resort, far from the UK’s economic problems.
The Prime Minister and his wife, Carrie, are currently vacationing in Marbella, Spain. The Prime Minister’s wife’s close friend Zac Goldsmith owns the £25,000-a-week Marbella holiday estate. Mr Goldsmith’s villa, which is nestled in the hills above the Costa del Sol, is owned by a Tory peer.
This will be the couple’s first foreign vacation since the outbreak of the coronavirus, since they vacationed in Scotland last year.
This year’s trip, however, has aroused debate because the British economy is expected to suffer as a result of the fuel crisis, the coronavirus outbreak, and supply chain issues.
Economists have warned that the UK could face a “winter of discontent” as a result of the escalating crises.
Steve Schifferes, an economy expert, told The Conversation about one key issue that the UK will face in the next months: “The most serious issue is the price of oil and gas.
“Since the beginning of 2021, wholesale gas prices in the United Kingdom have nearly tripled.
“Because gas remains a major component of the UK’s energy mix, consumer costs for gas and electricity have risen dramatically, affecting a wide range of enterprises, including steel and fertilizer plants that have been forced to temporarily close.”
The Prime Minister’s residence is close to the lovely village of Benahavis, and Mr Johnson’s family visit has sparked interest among residents.
Pedro Benares, a local farmer, told the Daily Mail: “Boris Johnson, your Prime Minister, is undoubtedly staying up late.
“I’m not sure when he arrived, but it’s something that everyone in the community is talking about.
“It’s a large, private mansion, yet they have to drive in and out.”
Torre Tramores is the name of the estate, which is located next to the village of Benahavis.
The exclusive resort has its own helicopter, allowing visitors to come and go without being spotted.
The villa’s main area is divided onto three stories and can accommodate up to 13 guests.
